This is the card of security and independence.
Nine of Stones encourages you not to rely on others to solve problems or have all the answers; all the answers you need are within you (symbolised by the shamanic stick) and you are quite capable of achieving material success through your own resources and efforts.
This is a good time for you to slow down and take stock. What is it you really want out of life? If the answer means turning your back on certain aspects of the “old” then this card is reassuring you that it is safe for you to do so.
Be brave! Be willing to take risks and set yourself out on a new adventure!
